AMERICAN REVOLUTION BICENTENNIAL MEDAL 
LITCHFIELD, NEW HAMPSHIRE 1976 

LITCHFIELD TOWN SEAL 

The design is Litchfield's new town seal. Focal point of the seal is the 
Town Hall, which was built in 1851 with timbers believed to have been 
salvaged from the 1737 meeting house. 

Flowing in front of the Town Hall is the Merrimack River, the town's 
western boundary. The river, prior to the advent of the railroad, was a 
major route for the exchange of goods, including Litchfield-manufactured 
bricks which were shipped by boat to Nashua, Lowell and other 
downstream cities-in-the-making. Corn shocks symbolize Litchfield's 
agricultural enterprises, present and past. 

The Indian represents the Naticooks who once roamed the town but 
whose only remaining traces are stone implements occasionally found 
along streams. The small portion of westerly river bank recalls that for 12 
years after its 1734 incorporation, Litchfield included the territory now 
known as the Town of Merrimack. 

Major elements for the seal were taken from a pen and ink drawing by 
Heidi Hale, 19, first place winner in the seal contest sponsored by the 
Litchfield Historical Society. Second place winner was Denise Constant, 
12, whose crayon drawing inspired the addition of the Merrimack River. 
Their concepts were adapted into a seal by Woodbury & Co., Inc., 
Worcester, Mass. 

Creation of a seal was a bicentennial project of the Litchfield Historical 
Society. Seal design committee members included: Roland E. Bergeron 
and Claudette T. Durocher, co-chairmen; Cecile G. Durocher, secretary; 
Eugene N. Pelkey; Selectman Paul M. Nicholas and the late Florence C. 
Center. Research was provided by Lewis C. Goffe, Historical Society 
president. 

BICENTENNIAL COMMEMORATIVE 

The reverse of Litchfield's commemorative medal honors the memory 
of those who served in the American Revolution 200 years ago. The 
number is 55 in the center of the medal struck by V.H. Blackinton Co., 
Attleboro Falls, Mass., refers to the number of Litchfield men believed to 
have left town for battle, according to available records. Many others 
served on a standby basis. 

Litchfield, as of the 1775 census, had a population of 284. Special taxes 
were imposed to finance the war effort and citizens were asked to supply 
provisions. In 1779, the then considerable sum of $1,000 was appropriated 
to raise men to fill the town's quota for the army. It is not known where 
all the Litchfield men served but sketchy reports show some among units 
at Bunker Hill, Ticonderoga, Fort George, New York City and Valley 
Forge.

LITCHFIELD LIBRARIAN 
1915- 1975 

LITCHFIELD TEACHER 
1911 - 1913, 1923 - 1925, 1943 - 1955 

Florence Caroline Center was born in Litchfield on May 26, 1888 and 
died here April 2, 1975, having lived here all her Hfe. She was educated in 
the Litchfield school and was graduated from Manchester High School in 
1906. She taught school in Merrimack, Pelham, Londonderry, and 
Litchfield before attending Lowell Normal School where she was 
graduated in 1916. Later she taught in Bennington and Litchfield and 
attended summer school at Keene and Plymouth Normal Schools. 

On the death of her mother in 1915 she was appointed Librarian, a 
position she held for 60 years until her death in 1975. 

She was active in many civic and social organizations including the 
Ladies Social Circle, The Litchfield Historical Association, and the 
Litchfield Presbyterian Church. She was a charter member of the G.F.C.'s 
and of the Litchfield Historical Society, and just before her death she 
received her 70 year certificate and pin from the Naumkeag Grange. Her 
last civic contribution was as a member of the Committee to choose the 
seal for the town of Litchfield. 

Many citizens of the town are her former pupils and in some famiUes 
they span three generations. As librarian and teacher she was always 
prepared to identify plants, birds, rocks, and other natural objects for 
patrons and students, and to search endlessly for lost ancestors or elusive 
pieces of information.

POLICE CHIEF'S REPORT 

In 1975, the Town of Litchfield added a full time officer to the Police 
Department. After careful consideration, the man chosen for the position 
was Kevin O'Leary, a former Manchester Police Officer. He has served his 
probationary period well and is now a permanent officer with the 
department. We find him a sincere and dedicated person with a very good 
knowledge of poHce matters and a lot of common sense. 

We were also fortunate to secure a grant from the Traffic Safety 
Commission, enabling us to purchase the newest radar equipment. With 
the use of this equipment, we have been able to apprehend many more 
speeders and have reduced our accidents to a minimum. Also in our cause 
to lower accident rates, the speed limits on our residential streets have 
been posted at thirty (30) miles per hour. We have also added stop and 
yield signs at intersections. 

On many occasions we are required to service several calls at once. In 
order to remedy this situation we have plans to purchase a new cruiser 
while retaining our present one. This would give us added patrol coverage. 
On many occasions, court cases, investigations and other poUce business 
takes us out of town. The additional vehicle would insure that at least one 
patrol car would be in town at all times. With the implementation of this, 
we also plan an increase in our patrol hours on a staggered time system. We 
feel that this would be an added deterrent and also an aid in enforcement. 
This year, we have cut our burglaries, and believe we can reduce the 
criminal activity even more by added patrol. This is especially true in the 
daytime when people are at work. As always we ask that when you plan a 
vacation to contact us and let us know when the house will be vacant. 

At the Town Business Meeting, you will be asked to vote on a warrant 
article concerning the administration of the PoHce Department. The 
warrant article will be, that effective March 1977, the Board of Selectmen 
will appoint the Chief of Police. With the growth of Litchfield and the 
increase of police activity, it is necessary to have a stable and continuous 
administration. In order to receive the many state and federal grants which 
the department depends on, it is necessary to have good, professional 
administration. It is our belief that the Town can accomplish the effective 
law enforcement it needs through this article. 

Some of you may be wondering about my position. At the end of 
1976, I will complete my 40th year in law enforcement. My career began 
in the "great flood" of 1936. Since that time, I have seen Litchfield grow 
from 210 people to its present population of over 2400. It has been a 
satisfying experience, but it is my wish to step down now and turn the 
department over to a quahfied man. 

David A. Campbell 
Chief of PoHce

REPORT OF THE FOREST FIRE WARDEN 

Upon the recommendation of town selectmen and city councils, the 
Division of Forests and Lands appoints a forest fire warden and several 
deputy forest fire wardens in each town and city every three years. The 
town or city warden is responsible for maintaining a force of men and 
adequate equipment to suppress any wildfire that occurs in his town or 
city during his term of appointment. The fire warden must authorize all 
open burning when the ground is not covered with snow. No open fires 
can be authorized between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., unless it is raining, without 
the additional permission of the state district fire chief. 

Any person wishing to kindle an open fire when the ground is not 
covered with snow must first obtain the written permission of the forest 
fire warden. Camp and cooking fires also require the warden's permission. 

The Division of Forests and Lands, through its Forest Fire Service, 
assists all cities and towns in meeting these requirements by training the 
warden and deputy forces in wildfire suppression tactics, making hand tool 
suppression equipment available at fifty percent of cost, supplying pieces 
of Federal excess property for use as fire attack vehicles and sharing up to 
fifty percent of the cost of wildfire suppression costs. 

Wildfire prevention is also a joint state, city or town program. Smokey 
Bear is available from the Forest Fire Service for local fire prevention 
programs. Posters and Junior Ranger kits are available for distribution by 
local fire departments upon request to the Forest Fire Service. Each forest 
fire warden is expected to carry on a continuous wildfire prevention 
program within his town or city.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE FIRE CHIEF 

FIRE HOUSE, LITCHFIELD "76", has come a long way from the 
early days when it was estabHshed by Farmer French in the year 1946. 
The first engine was purchased by a group of interested Volunteers. They 
tucked the "shiny" used engine away under a barn, with pride and 
intentions of establishing fire protection for the town of Litchfield. 

In early years the communication alert system used was the 
telephone, which, had a lot to be desired. Only a few years passed and a 
need to establish a Fire Station became quite evident. Donations for 
cement blocks, timber from the woods were gathered and the project 
began with the cooperation of a few dedicated men. 

As time passed, the need for expansion became evident, therefore, the 
decision was made for the town to take over the present station and use 
town monies to make the necessary expansions for proper fire protection. 

Only through the concern of Litchfield citizens and the interest of a 
few dedicated men has the department grown to the point it is today. In 
the twenty -nine years that the Fire Department has been in existence there 
has only been six Fire Chiefs, five of whom are still living in Litchfield. 
They are: Wesley French, Robert Jerry, Leon Calawa, Jr., Arthur Burgess, 
Lawrence Olson, Sr. and Ronald Mason. 

The fire department is protecting an access valuation of over thirteen 
million dollars. Yet, the total budget does not exceed .0046%. This 
certainly proves that everyone is doing their "job". 

Through the efforts of the fire department we have acquired a 
military vehicle 6x6. The forestry department received a sum of $2400 of 
matching funds for the town to purchase this truck which was put into 
service September 1st. 

The members of the department are to be congratulated and the 
citizens are to be thanked for cooperation shown towards the department. 

Respectively yours, 
Ronald Mason 
Fire Chief

ANNUAL REPORT LITCHFIELD CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

Three dredge and fill permit applications were filed through 1975. 
Two were challenged-residential streets planned across Brick Yard Brook 
less than a mile west of a major road crossing mapped out by the Planning 
Board. The subdivider, Planning Board, Nashua Regional Planning 
Commission, and Conservation Commission negotiated a two-crossing 
compromise, including the arterial route, and worked out a pedestrian 
easement providing pubhc access to the brook while not disturbing privacy 
rights of neighborhood homeowners. 

More disappointing was a recreation site proposed for the Page Road 
area. Deeds to two parcels of donated land were presented to officials in 
January. In June, the Commission applied for Bureau of Outdoor 
Recreation funds for development of one lot and purchase of an adjoining 
one. An appraiser was hired to assess the property, as required by B.O.R. 
Meanwhile, the unfiled deeds were misplaced. When replaced in November, 
the lot for which the Commission was negotiating had been sold as a 
houselot, and the appraisal money was lost. In December, the Commission 
voted not to risk more taxpayer money in the venture at this time. 

On a more positive note. Commission member Nancy Hendrick was 
elected a director in the New Hampshire Association of Conservation 
Commissions. 

Assistant Chairman Raymond Durocher participated in a Regional 
Open Space Committee formed by the Nashua Regional Planning 
Commission. 

Land leased by Dr. Lewis Goffe for a wildlife refuge was officially 
named Isaac McQuesten Wildhfe Sanctuary in honor of Dr. Goffe's 
grandfather, who'd owned the property. The Commission took on the 
duty of identifying its borders and posting the land against trespass. 

We again sponsored a local teenager (Holly Hokenstrom) to 
Conservation Camp. Famihes interested in details for the June, 1976 Camp 
are invited to contact any Commission Member. 

At the request of numerous citizens, we researched the effects of turf 
farming on agricultural land. While reserving final judgment until results 
can be seen locally, we have found no indication that a competently 
managed sod operation will prove detrimental to the soil. Its effects upon 
the food-growing industry cannot yet be determined. We encourage the 
Planning Board in its efforts to formulate regulations which will be fair to 
responsible turf farmers while discouraging shoddy operations from 
moving into town.

REPORT OF THE RECREATION COMMITTEE 

During the past year, the Recreation Committee supervised the 
formation of the Litchfield Girls Softball League. During the summer 
months, the three teams played each other with the championship 
play-offs being held at the Annual Family Field Day. During the coming 
year, we hope to schedule games with surrounding towns. Plans are also 
being formulated to initiate a school girls basketball league. 

Playground equipment, including a nine-seat swing set and a jungle jim 
were set up at the North End Recreation Park. The children have really 
made good use of this equipment and it is hoped that similar facilities will 
be developed in other areas of the town. 

The remaining balance in the Matching Fund Account for the North 
End Recreation Park was expended. The money was used for grading and 
leveling a section of the land North of the existing ball park for the future 
development of additional recreational facilities. At this time, nothing 
definite has been proposed and suggestions would be welcomed. 

The Senior Citizens Club has continued to function and meet on a 
regular basis. During the month of May, a full course turkey dinner was 
given by the Committee and all Senior Citizens of the town received 
personal invitations by mail. The turn-out was quite disappointing and 
members of the Committee, who had worked so hard in preparing for this 
dinner, have suggested that we reconsider putting on this activity again in 
the future. 

The regularly scheduled activities of the committee were again quite 
successful this year. The Family Field Day hosted the biggest crowd in its 
five year history. Unbelievable amounts of hot dogs and corn were 
consumed and both young and old enjoyed themselves. The Halloween 
party also proved to be quite popular with the youngsters as they played 
the traditional games and were awarded prizes for their skills and 
costumes. 

The Committee sponsored a Bean Supper with tickets going for the 
unbelievable price of 50 cents a head. The response was quite encouraging 
and a similar supper will be considered again for next year. 

There are many other programs and activities that could be enjoyed 
by the residents of Litchfield. However, all this requires man-power. The 
Committee has a limited staff of five devoted people who can only do so 
much. Litchfield is as much your town as it is theirs. So show that you 
care about what's happening in your town by helping us develop 
recreational programs that will benefit both you and your children now 
and in the years to come.

MERRIMACK VALLEY HOME HEALTH CARE ASSOC, INC. 
ANNUAL REPORT 1975 



"Alternatives to institutionalization" has become a familiar phrase -- a 
phrase that has turned the attention of communities to ways of caring for 
people at home. The negative effect of inappropriate or inadequate 
institutional care for the aging, ill, handicapped, retarded and dependent 
and neglected children has become very apparent. Emphasis on care of 
individuals and famiUes at home has focused attention on services that 
make such care possible -- comprehensive home health care associations. 



We are happy to note that our agency offers a broad range of services 
through its 18 staff members. 160 nursing visits, 22 physical, occupational 
or speech therapy visits, 2 social service visits and 207 home maker/home 
health aide visits taking SSAVi hours were provided to residents of 
Litchfield in 1975. In addition 27 telephone consultations were provided 
and Litchfield children attended clinics held in our other towns. 



Financial problems arose early in the year which necessitated 
re-evaluation of programs and costs. Though our costs per visit have 
essentially audited to the same figures as previously, we are finding more 
people with financial problems who need care but are not able to pay any 
or only partially for care. Over 70 free visits were made in Litchfield. 
Broad based funding from many sources continues to require constant 
search and proposal formulation. 



Our Board of Directors continues to be an active group of twenty-one 
residents of the towns we serve. 1975 Litchfield board members are: Mrs. 
John Nelson, Mrs. Raymond Moore, and Mrs. Eugene Pelkey. 



We welcome volunteer help, requests for information and suggestions 
on how we may serve you, the community, more effectively. If you have a 
problem or know of someone who does, we are available through a phone 
call to our office. 424-3822.

SELECTMEN'S REPORT 

This being the Bicentennial year, we the Board of Selectmen, in lieu 
of writing about our achievements, accomplishments in the year 75-76, 
felt that congratulatory remarks should be extended to all the people of 
Litchfield, especially Committee Chairmen and members who gave their 
time in making our town what it is. 

Demands for our time are on the increase but we know the residents 
will continue to come forward and lend that helping hand. This is Our 
Town, Your Town and it reflects its people. All the programs we offer will 
demonstrate how we feel about our community. 

The year ahead will indeed provide new challenges, many new homes 
are being built, new services will be needed. An Industrial Commission is 
being formed and many studies are being done to better prepare for the 
future. One thing is for sure, we will continue to grow soundly, always 
keeping in mind we are a community of people. 

Thanks again for your past efforts. We also would Hke to thank you in 
advance for your future contributions to our town.

LITCHFIELD BICENTENNIAL COMMITTEE REPORT 

A committee was formed in late 1975 to initiate programs for the 
year 1976. 

A bicentennial ball was held at the Griffin School on January 17, 
1976. One hundred and sixteen people attended. 

Future plans call for Memorial Day exercises which will include 
dedication of a veterans' memorial to be built in front of the Town Hall. 

Fourth of July plans call for a family picnic, square dance exhibition, 
song fest, block dance and giant bon fire. 

Plans are being formulated for a two day Agricultural Fair to be held 
in September. Festivities will include an agricultural exhibit, antiques, 
Family Field Day (usually held in August) booths, games. Fire Department 
demonstration, auction of registered No. 1, 2, 3 silver Litchfield 
Bicentennial Coins, PoHce Department exhibit, square dance and many 
other activities. 

The committee is looking for more volunteers to help us with these 
activities and welcome your support and assistance.

ROAD AGENT'S REPORT FOR 1975 

The year of 1975's accomplishments were mainly maintenance of 
existing roads, replacing 2 culverts which after many years of service and 
with increased traffic collapsed. These were replaced with a larger diameter 
for increased volume and a longer length. 

It has become more apparent this last year that roads built several years 
ago, which at that time were adequate for the amount of travel expected, 
are now proving inadequate for present day travel. It will be necessary 
either to up-grade or reconstruct these roads as traffic continues to 
increase, for safety sake. 

As prices increase yearly for materials and the town grows with 
increased roads, it will be necessary to spend more money to maintain our 
roads at an acceptable level.

This year has been marked by change at the Library. The death of 
Florence Center after 60 years of service has left a great void. Many 
volunteers filled in during her illness and their help was greatly 
appreciated. 

During the first half of 1975, assistant Librarian, Kendall Wiggin, 
made a great beginning in reorganizing the Library. There is still much to 
be done and work is continuing at a slow pace. 

Litchfield residents have been very generous this year with many 
donations being received. Among the donors were: Claudette Durocher, 
Lewis Goffe, Bedford Public Library, Elliot Hospital School of Nursing, 
Merrimack Public Library, Ray Danielson, Carl Peterson, Charles Sausville, 
Ken Wiggin, Nancy Desrosiers, Ginna Joslin, Nadine Larrabee, and Holly 
Hokenstrom. A scrapbook of news clippings was received from Martha 
PhiUips. In addition we received an anonymous donation to be used to 
purchase children's books. The children's section can always use new 
books. 

Our biggest purchase of the year was a new set of the Encyclopedia 
Britannica. 

Our total circulation for 1975 was 1567. There were 28 new 
borrowers registered. New titles added were 328. Total volumes is now 
9100. 

The annual book sale held in the fall was very successful. Proceeds 
from this sale are used to purchase books and supplies. 

The state bookmobile continues to serve us on a quarterly basis and 
we have greatly increased the number of books borrowed. 

As someone who is new to the library and also new to library work, I 
welcome your suggestions for new books and improvements. I also urge 
you to use the Hbrary. It exists to serve you.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

To the School Board and 
Citizens of Litchfield: 

The following paragraphs constitute my report as Superintendent of 
Schools. 

The past school year and the first half of the current year have given 
evidence of a slow but steady increase in overall student population. With 
this in mind, the School Board appointed a study committee to investigate 
all the alternatives to accommodate increased pupil growth. Although it 
appears to the committee that we will not need additional space until 
September of 1979, this committee will consider the results of a 
questionnaire that will be distributed by the Parents Advisory Council 
before making their final recommendations to the Board. We must remain 
alert to changes in pupil growth patterns to insure continued availabiHty of 
adequate space for our educational program. 

Our top priority goal as adopted by the Litchfield School Board for 
1975-76 is improved education for the handicapped. Toward fulfillment of 
this objective, we have instituted the position of Director of Special 
Services to serve both the Hudson and Litchfield School Districts. Mrs. 
Lisa LeFevre is currently serving in that capacity. 

Under Mrs. LeFevre 's direction, we have adopted new procedures for 
the placement of handicapped youngsters in keeping with new federal 
legislation for the handicapped referred to as PL 93-380. In addition, all 
handicapped youngsters both attending the Litchfield schools as well as 
those being tuitioned outside of the districts are being reevaluated in order 
to insure that we are providing them the best possible educational program 
at the most reasonable cost to the school district. 

A Special Services Parent Advisory Committee as well as a 
Professional Steering Committee have been established and are presently 
functioning as separate entities. There are representatives from Litchfield 
serving on both of these committees. The Special Services Department is 
also reviewing the pupil reporting system in conjunction with the Parent 
Advisory Committee and will make a direct effort to improve all lines of 
communication between home and school. 



110 



Another area of the instructional program that will receive direct 
attention during the current academic year is the reading program. 
Reading is the central thread that runs through our entire program at the 
elementary level. The ability to read and our success toward equipping 
each student with the skills necessary to read is the basis of our entire 
instructional format. Dr. Jane Westcott of the Dr. H.O. Smith School staff 
is heading up the committee to complete a review of all materials presently 
being used in the reading program as well as determining the feasibiUty of 
becoming involved in the state "Right to Read" program. 

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex 
discrimination in educational programs or institutions that receive federal 
funds. The statement is simple, its intent clear. Elementary schools have 
one year within which to move into full compliance and secondary schools 
have three years. 

We have estabHshed a Title IX Committee under the chairmanship of 
Mr. Robert Keeser, assistant principal of the Dr. H.O. Smith School in 
Hudson, whose responsibiHties will be threefold: First, to evaluate the 
status of the Hudson and Litchfield School Districts relative to Title IX, 
Secondly, to establish a grievance procedure and to act as an advisory 
committee in the matter of grievances and finally, to establish a program 
of affirmative action that will bring the Hudson and Litchfield School 
Districts toward full compliance. 

The cost of goods and services continues to rise at an unprecedented 
rate. This fact coupled with a steady increase in pupil enrollment has had 
an inflationary effect on the cost of running the pubhc schools. With this 
in mind, we are making every effort to run the schools in as efficient and 
cost effective manner as possible. I would Hke to take this opportunity to 
thank the citizens of Litchfield for your understanding and cooperation in 
these critical times. 

In closing, I would like to thank the School Board, Mr. Donegan, and 
the entire school staff for their unfailing cooperation, and finally, the 
citizens of Litchfield for their commitment to excellence in the total 
educational program. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Peter G. Dolloff 
Superintendent of Schools

REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT 
OF SCHOOLS 



December 1975 



Mr. Peter G. Dolloff 
Superintendent of Schools 
Litchfield, New Hampshire 

Dear Mr. Dolloff: 

The following comments constitute my annual report as Assistant 
Superintendent. The 1975-76 academic year opened very smoothly to 361 
students in grades 1-8. With the assistance of parent volunteers and the 
alertness of the Litchfield staff, all students were immediately directed to 
their assigned rooms. Thus the first day of school began in a very routine 
and orderly fashion. 

Our most pressing concern is the increased enrollment that we have 
experienced during the initial months. Although we opened to 361 
students, four below our anticipated projection, we have enrolled 18 
additional students since the beginning of September. Should the growth 
pattern continue at the aforementioned rate, we will exceed our designed 
building capacity of 383 students during the 1976-77 school year. 
Realistically speaking, a school can house approximately 10% beyond 
designed capacity with schedule manipulations and grade combinations. 
However, once this figure is surpassed, the student overlaod begins to 
seriously tax the core facilities. Spaces such as the multi-purpose room, 
library, kitchen, lavatories, and corridors cannot adequately accommodate 
the increased student body. Based on our present pupil projections, 
assuming all variables remain relatively equal, we will have 427 plus 
students in September 1978. 

Recognizing the potential growth factors, the Litchfield Board 
initiated a study committee to investigate the various alternatives open to 
the Litchfield School District should the economy stabilize and the growth 
rate materiaUzes at an accelerated pace. 

To date, the committee has reviewed the recent figures submitted by 



112 



the Litchfield Planning Board, reviewed with the architectural firm of 
Fenton Keyes phase II and III of the proposed expansion plans developed 
in 1972, analyzed enrollment projections and discussed such alternatives as 
year round education, portable classrooms, double sessions and temporary 
housing. 

To gain additional input from the community at large, the board plans 
to conduct a survey with the assistance of the Parent Advisory Committee. 
Hopefully, this information will provide substantial substance for the 
formation of a philosophical base of operation. Once this data has been 
compiled, the study committee will reconvene, review the feedback, and 
make a recommendation to the board for their consideration. 

In the area of curriculum, we believe there is a definite need for a 
formaHzed physical education program and also an expanded health 
curriculum. Students should have the opportunity at an early age to 
develop individual physical skills as well as a healthy, physical and mental 
attitude. Thus we have asked, through the budgetary process, that 
consideration be given to adding a full time physical education instructor 
and also for an increase in the nurse's services. We strongly beUeve that 
these two additions will help strengthen the program offerings. 

Another area that should be commented on briefly is staff 
development. We are continuing to refine our teacher programs and now 
we are beginning to reap the rewards in the classroom. With workshops in 
Remedial Reading, Learning Disabilities, Value Clarification, etc., teachers 
are developing new skills for reaching the exceptional child. The Litchfield 
staff should be commended for their fine response to the program. 
Participation and enthusiasm have been great. 

In conclusion, Mr. Dolloff, I would Hke to thank you personally for 
your support during my short tenure in Supervisory Union No. 27. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Larry W. Burton 
Assistant Superintendent 

December 11, 1975

REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL 

December 23, 1975 



Mr. Peter G. DoUoff 
Superintendent of Schools 
Litchfield, New Hampshire 

Dear Mr. Dolloff: 



I am happy to report that the plan for individualizing the program 
here at Griffin Memorial School is progressing well. This is the third and 
final year of Project SHARE, a major federally funded program. However, 
we intend continuing the concept of individually guided education 
throughout the entire eight grades. 

Again our in-service training program (in tandem with Project SHARE 
outcomes,) is involved in a Rescheduled School Day. Bi-monthly we have 
early dismissal of students so that teachers may become involved in 
improving the curriculum and teaching methods. As a result of 
Rescheduled Time we have adopted the Wisconsin Design Word Attack 
and Study Skill Programs - continuous progress programs with sequential 
skills and management record keeping systems. This is in effect throughout 
all 8 grades with teachers and students being interchanged for individual 
needs in specific areas regardless of grade levels. To further aid us we have 
become increasingly involved in Seresc - Staff Development Workshops. 
Last year I was unsuccessful in obtaining a full time Physical Education 
teacher. Again, this year I must reiterate the need for such a person and 
cannot stress too pointedly the importance of this post in rounding out 
our program here at Griffin Memorial and making the learning process a 
truly comprehensive experience. 

This year we again have new staff members: Mr. Francis Hoell, our 
Special Education leader, has the added duty of an Assistant Principalship 
and Miss Constance Faro is our new Reading Specialist. Miss Lorraine 
Palmer has taken over as Speech Therapist and Miss Linda Jenness as Music 
Coordinator; Mrs. Gladys Mulcahey has joined the kitchen staff. In the 



114 



Primary Team we welcome Mr. Blaine Chickering and in the Jr. High 
Team, Mr. Charles Bolianites. The Hudson/Litchfield School Union is 
pleased to welcome Miss Lisa LeFevre to the new position of Pupil 
Personnel Director. 



Parent involvement in our school and extra-curricular programs have 
continued to grow -- 92% in the Primary Group attended Parent/Teacher 
conferences, 90.7% in the Intermediate Group and 80% for the Jr. High. 
Two afternoons a week there are co-ed intramural activities with special 
transportation provided for participants: Soccer in the fall, basketball in 
the winter and baseball and track in the spring. The Parent Advisory 
Council continues to contribute valuable assistance. Mrs. Vicky Durzy is 
presently heading the Council and Mrs. Pat Pedersen is responsible for the 
P.A.C. Newsletter. A very special thanks must be tended to the many 
parents who contributed generously of their time and talents in 
constructing the new playground equipment -- a definite plus for the 
students. 



Again I wish to express my gratitude to the various staff members 
who continue to make my tenure here so enjoyable; these include the 
secretary Mrs. Mary Frye and summer replacement secretary. Miss Karen 
Desjardins; Team Leaders Miss Martha McNaught, Mr. Robert Magher, Mr. 
Francis Hoell. Our Nurse Mrs. Candace Hale, and the Cafeteria Director 
Mrs. Theresa Pinard and her splendid staff and last but not least, to our 
custodians Mr. James Gass and Mr. Dennis Beaudry as well as every 
member of the teaching staff. 



Special thanks must be expressed to the townspeople. Budget 
Committee, School Board and the Central Office for all the support and 
dedication to our policies and programs. 



Respectfully submitted, 



J. Richard Donegan 
Principal

ANNUAL REPORT 

DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL SERVICES 

SUPERVISORY UNION NO. 27 

As a still very new Director of Special Services, I would, first of all, 
like to thank the school district of Litchfield for providing me this 
opportunity. 1 am pleased and excited about the progress we have made 
and the changes we are already affecting. I would like to share some of 
these successes and future plans with you. 

My foremost goal is to provide the best possible services to all our 
handicapped students. In order to do this, we must have a process of 
identification, program planning and implementation, and child need and 
program re-evaluation that is structured, consistent and reaUstic. To 
achieve this, I am directing myself and my staff towards ten distinct but 
closely interrelated goals. These are: 

1) The formulation of a referral review team in each school and use 
of a standardized teacher-referral diagnostic battery and case 
study procedure. 

2) The development of an individualized educational plan geared to 
a child's own pattern of strengths and weaknesses for each child 
receiving any sort of special education. 

3) The exploration and full utilization of all appropriate community 
agencies and resources to supplement on-going pubUc school 
programs. 

4) The expansion of the kind of services Dr. Slatoff, Psychological 
Consultant, provides. 

5) The upgrading of special services staff expertise in the areas of 
evaluation, objective and goal development, curriculum and 
intervention strategies. A wider dissemination of information and 
refinement of individualization planning processes to regular 
pubHc school staff. 

6) Immediate re-evaluation and continuous yearly re-evaluation of 
all children receiving special education. 



118 



7) The development of quarterly reports specific to the needs of 
children receiving special services. 

8) The estabhshment of a truly parent advisory committee to meet 
every three weeks with the Director that is representative of all 
the disability areas we serve within the Supervisory Union. 

9) The estabhshment of a professional steering committee to 
develop uniform coherent strategies and future directions for 
Special Services in the Supervisory Union that will meet quarterly 
with P.A.C. 



10) The assessment of the value and appropriateness of the private 
placements for children in special services with particular 
emphasis on evaluating the feasibility of reintegrating individual 
students back into our public school programs. 

In conjunction with this, the possibility of developing programs 
within the Supervisory Union and the region to service children privately 
placed and those in need and at this time receiving no services, is being 
explored. 

I am presently working on every goal targeted above. To document 
our progress in each would be too cumbersome in scope, to undertake in 
this report. However, I would hke to point out a few of the truly 
significant improvements that have taken place. Each school in the 
Supervisory Union now has a Referral Review Team with myself, Dr. Jack 
Slatoff, Psychological Consultant, and Paula Porter and Lorraine Palmer, 
Speech Therapists, acting as consultants to each team. A standard 
procedure for referrals, conferencing, obtaining parental permission for 
testing and programming, testing, recording results, meetings, and staffing 
with parents, has been formulated and is in operation. Testing when 
necessary and the development of individualized programs for each of 
these students is either completed or in process. 

Presently we are utihzing, or developing plans to utilize, the following 
community resources: Community Council, Nashua Youth Council, 



119 



Nashua's Boy's Club, The Visiting Nurse Association, Crippled Children's 
Services, Vocational RehabiHtation, N.E.E.D.S., Inc. and the Lion's Club. 
We have also begun to service severely speech impaired pre-schoolers as 
well. 



Every child in the Special Education Classes has already had or is in 
the process of receiving a complete re-evaluation. As a result of this 
process, five children in the Supervisory Union have been returned fully to 
regular classes and three more have been partially reintegrated. Three 
students have been returned from private placement or home tutoring to 
pubHc school special services programs. This process should continue as 
more students are re-evaluated. 



Our new quarterly reports for special education which contain 
checkhsts for each basic skill area, are being presented to parents for each 
marking period and it is my feeling that they greatly improve the quality 
of communication provided. A successful and positive representative 
special services parent body has been created and meets every three weeks. 
It appears to have become an articulate and supportive community hason. 



There are many other areas where real progress has been made to 
improve programs and services. As our skills become refined and the body 
of knowledge in special services grows, more children with needs are 
referred. State laws and guidelines are also creating an increased awareness 
of, and demand for, special services. It is realistic to expect the number of 
students serviced within and outside the Supervisory Union to grow. It is 
our challenge to provide improved and perhaps new programs to meet this 
need in a reasonable and effective manner. I look forward positively to 
meeting this challenge, primarily due to the great support and direction 
provided by Mr. Dolloff and Mr. Burton and the great enthusiasm and 
dedication of the Special Services Staff. 



Very Respectfully, 

Lisa LeFevre 
Director 
Special Services

LITCHFIELD SCHOOL BOARD 

REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN 

The Litchfield School Board has continued to see the basic 
educational philosophy of Individually Guided Education (IGE) mature 
into a more effective means of assuring each of our students the maximum 
educational experience according to his or her own ability. The growth has 
been the direct result of community and faculty commitment. The 
community has supported the IGE program both financially and - perhaps 
most importantly - with volunteer service in the school. 

The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) has continued to function very 
effectively as a means for the school staff and the community to 
communicate directly in an honest effort to achieve maximum utilization 
of our school and community resources for the benefit of our youngsters. 
Two very important accomplishments of the PAC this year have been (1) 
coordination of an effective School Volunteer Program which must 
continue to grow if we are to meet our commitment to IGE, and (2) 
coordination and inspiration for the community-action project that 
resulted in the construction of a playground for our youngsters. (Those 
who were not among the thirty or more who worked that World Series 
Saturday missed a great satisfying day of fun and work.) 

Your School Board very strongly supports greater community 
awareness and involvement in the process of educating our children. It has 
been very satisfying to see improvement in this area through : 

1 . The Parent Advisory Council 

2. The School Volunteer Program 

3. The League of Women Voters: 

a. observer at School Board Meetings 

b. establishment of a School Study Committee 

4. The Building Study Committee 

This has been the first full year of operation under the NEW 
Supervisory Union No. 27 (Hudson and Litchfield). It has been very 
gratifying to work this year in a true team spirit with the Hudson School 
Board. Throughout all of our working sessions there has been a 
constructive attitude of mutual respect and consideration. For this spirit 
the Litchfield Board is thankful. 

An important addition to our Supervisory Union staff has been Ms. 
Lisa LeFevre as Director, Special Services. The laws and regulations 
relative to children requiring special educational considerations have 



121 



become complex beyond the layman's wildest dreams. You, the taxpayers 
of Litchfield, may be assured that you have received 200% return on your 
investment in this new service. 

The Citizens of Litchfield can be grateful that there is a cooperative 
team spirit that runs through our education system right from 
Superintendent Dolloff through the entire staff of Griffin Memorial 
School. Though there has often been constructive differences of opinion, 
there has never been any doubt that the common goal is the best possible 
education from the facilities the community has made available. 

At the time of preparing this report, Larry West has made known his 
intention not to seek re-election to the School Board on which he has 
served for the last six years. His contributions to the advancement of our 
community's educational programs have been greater than most reaUze. 
For all your service, Larry, we all say "Thank you for a job well done". 

Respectfully, 
Philip M. Reed, 
Chairman, 1975 

Litchfield School Board 



REPORT OF THE 1975 SCHOOL BUILDING COMMITTEE 

On October 2, 1975, the Litchfield School Board on recognizing the 
potential impact on our present educational plant of a rapid population 
expansion, established a School Building Committee. The extensive charge 
to the committee requires a preliminary report to the March 1976 School 
District Meeting. 

The committee was established v^th 1 Planning Board Member, 1 
Budget Committee Member, 1 PAC Member, 1 representative from the 
League of Women Voters, 1 teacher representative, 1 School Board 
representative, a member from the Supervisory Union Office and two 
citizens-at-large. 

The committee has had several productive meetings where we received 
the growth indicators from the planning board; met with a representative 
of the architectural firm of Fenton G. Keyes, met v^th Mr. Gordon Tate 
of the New Hampshire State Department of Education, Division of 



122 



Administration, the Chairman of the Planning Board, and general meetings 
to review the accumulated facts and opinions. 

At present, it is the conclusion of the committee that if the citizens 
support the efforts of the planning board to control our rate of growth, 
and there are no dramatic changes in our community trends, the present 
plant will be able to accommodate our needs until September 1979. (This 
is going from our present enrollment of approximately 380 students in 
grades one through eight to a projected 421 by June 1979.) Therefore, 
there is no need for any funding of the committee operations during the 
1976-77 year. 

Plans are being developed to survey the community with great 
assistance from the PAC. The survey will be designed to determine the 
sentiment of the taxpayers relative to such matters as year round 
programs, double sessions, adult education faciUties, and in general 
determine how complete an educational program the people wish to 
support. From this information, the Building Committee will develop 
proposals for the March 1977 School District Meeting. 

It cannot be too strongly emphasized that this committee wants all 
the citizen input it can get so that its 1977 proposals will be a meaningful 
reflection of the desires of the entire School District. 

Respectfully, 

PhiHp M. Reed, 
Chairman 1975
